It's Already Started

As a follow-up to my earlier post about making Sarah Palin a hero and creating a serious backlash, it's already started. Rasmussen reports via Think Progress that a majority of GOPes heart the gentle lassie from Alaska.

When asked to choose among some of the GOP’s top names for their choice for the party’s 2012 presidential nominee, 64% say Palin. The next closest contenders are two former governors and unsuccessful challengers for the presidential nomination this year — Mike Huckabee of Arkansas with 12% support and Mitt Romney of Massachusetts with 11%.

Three other sitting governors – Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Charlie Crist of Florida and Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota – all pull low single-digit support.

Oh dear, so let's see... Who would have the MOST to gain by spreading Palin rumors like a farmer spreading cow dung on a corn field??

For the howler's money, it's moles deep in the McCain campaign from either Mutable Mitt or The Singing Huckster. Both are just sleazy enough...

Update: Washington Whisper observes that die-hard conservatives are taking attacks on Palin very, very personally. Not a good thing for someone with Iowa and New Hampshire ambitions in '12.

I gotta say that I'm not too worried about Palin. 1) Mainstream Conservative establishment Republicans will gang up on her (I think all the dirt that is being dished on her now is a part of that) 2)She essentially is a cultural warrior (does she have any ideas?) and the cultural war is dying. 3) I seriously doubt she has the organizational ability to run nationally. Give it two months and she is done.
